TOPIC: Little Boy Impacted The World...
A blog called Damn Interesting caught my eye this week. Although the name is an unfortunate use of vulgar language, the blog offers some excellent articles on historic events. Specific to this date in history, Eyewitnesses to Hiroshima and Nagasaki tells the story of the atomic bombing that took place on August 5, 1945. Take the time to read the eyewitness accounts of those who survived the blasts that changed the face of Japan and World War II. They will bring shivers and tears to you. Let's hope we never have to use such drastic measures again. Let us also be reminded of why it is so important for rogue governments (such as Iran and North Korea) NOT to have nuclear weapons.
[BTW, I would skip most of the subsequent Comments section as the writers digress into diatribe and cynicism.]
